360 HD-DVD details

Thursday 28 September 2006
The HD-DVD add-on drive for Xbox 360 will launch in the UK in mid November, priced at £130, Microsoft revealed at its X06 event in Barcelona.

The first HD-DVD packs will come bundled with Peter Jackson's King Kong on HD-DVD and an Xbox 360 Universal Media remote control.

Microsoft will launch a console update this autumn that will enhance all Xbox 360s with the ability to output 1080p resolution games and movies. More than 150 HD-DVD titles are due to be released before the end of the year, including titles from Paramount, Universal, New Line and Warner Bros. That'll be an HD Lord of the Rings marathon over Christmas for the GamesRadar team, then.
